Halloween with Annaliese

When Annalise Nobile said she wanted to shoot at Bishops Pumpkin farm, I really didn’t know what to expect, other then a lot of people. I had never visited the farm before but I was really amazed by the size. It was more of a county fair grounds environment vs a farm situation. Not only did we capture some great pumpkin pictures, but we also found some places to get a unique moody vibe.

More with Annaliese Nobile

Teen model, Annaliese asked me to do a photoshoot with her in Nevada City this week. The 3 hour shoot included a visit to the Holbrooke Hotel in Grass Valley before it was closed for renovation. We probably had the very last photoshoot in that hotel before the furniture was sold and the wallpaper removed.

We used natural light in the hotel, so that we would not bother the people running around the hallways purchasing every lamp, chair and bed in the building.

Model Bridget Pelzman

I had a chance today to work with a 16 year old professional model Bridget Pelzman.  For a a teen model, she really has very talented and made for a wonderful shooting experience. A few of my images from the shoot can be found in today's blog update.

The outdoor images were shot with natural light in Folsom. I didn't have access to a flash or reflector, which I think would have really been great to help the eyes pop.
